Yes, an industrial loft can be cosy. Sarah Callanan, Angus & Company's in-house designer, fell in love with her 900-square-foot unit's raw features — exposed brick, natural wood beams and an open-concept floor plan — which she embellished with pops of colour, family antiques and vintage lighting. See how she updated the small kitchen by painting the cupboards out white, traded a tub for a luxe shower, and maximized storage in the bedroom.
Get luxe-for-less, small space decorating tips from Houmed Arjomand of Gluckstein Design, who transformed his 600-square-foot builder-basic condo into a classic space reminiscent of a Victorian manor. Tour his living room, complete with an art wall and generous seating for entertaining, a dramatic bedroom and a wallpapered kitchen.
How do you turn a 1960s space into a cottage-inspired retreat in the city? Designer Stephen Caldwell offers tips as he takes us through his 800-square-foot apartment overlooking English Bay. Steal his ideas for creating a welcoming entryway, maximizing natural light and arranging a functional, open-concept living room.
